Fowles named first team All-SEC

Sylvia Fowles, a 6-6 junior center for the LSU women's basketball team, was named first-team All-Southeastern Conference by the Associated Press on Tuesday.

Fowles, one of three unanimous selections on the five-member team, was joined by Tennessee's Candace Parker, Ole Miss' Armintie Price, Georgia's Tasha Humphrey and Alexis Hornbuckle of Tennessee.

Parker and Price were the other two unanimous selections made by the media organization.

Fowles averaged 17.5 points and 14.8 rebounds per game in LSU's 14 conference games and became the first player in league history to record a double double in every SEC game. Overall this season in 33 games, Fowles averaged 17.2 points and 12.8 rebounds. The Miami, Fla., native collected 25 double doubles, including a streak of 19 straight that was snapped in the SEC Tournament title game against Vanderbilt on Sunday.

Quianna Chaney, a second-team All-SEC selection by the coaches, was named honorable mention all-conference by the AP. Chaney averaged 13.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in SEC play and posted 11.7 points and 2.7 boards per game overall.

The AP selected Tennessee's Pat Summitt as Coach of the Year and Parker as Player of the Year, while Georgia's Ashley Houts received Newcomer of the Year honors.
